Wyoming’s active coronavirus case count increased by 131 on Tuesday from Monday.
The Wyoming Department of Health said it received reports of 468 recoveries among those with confirmed or probable cases on Tuesday.
At the same time, the state reported 371 new laboratory-confirmed and 267 new probable cases, leaving Wyoming with 3,807 active cases.
Twelve counties had more than 100 active cases, seven had more than 200. Natrona County led the state in active cases at 652; Laramie had 361; Campbell had 345; Fremont 338; Sweetwater 223; Uinta 275; Sheridan 234; Park 181; Lincoln 167; Converse 155; Teton 130; Albany 119; Carbon 86; Goshen 74; Crook 68; Washakie 60; Big Horn 53; Platte 51; Hot Springs 47; Sublette 40; Johnson 33; Weston had 32, and Niobrara had 23.
Active cases are determined by adding the total confirmed and probable coronavirus cases diagnosed since the illness first surfaced in Wyoming on March 12, 2020, subtracting the number of recoveries during the same period among patients with both confirmed and probable cases and taking into account the number of deaths attributed to the illness.
The new confirmed and probable cases brought to 82,463 the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus since the first case was detected in Wyoming in March 2020. Of those, 77,738 have recovered.
